Blog Post Title Patterns That Generate More Traffic
1. Personal Experiences
This is one of the content types that really attract people to your blog especially if you are an authority in your blogging niche. Every blogger would love to know your experience in order to learn from you and become as successful as you have been. I noticed that when I wrote a personal blog post titled “How I Drive Traffic To My Blog Without Google“. This article had a huge acceptance and traffic that got me into writing a sequel to the article later. You can experiment with personal experience blog posts, they are cool content ideas that drive massive traffic to blogs.
2. Case Studies
This is also similar to Personal Experience type of content, just a little bit different. In this type of content, you might not have experience it directly, but studied it from another bloggers experience and you come up with a case study on that. I can write a blog content such as “Secrets on How John Chow Was Able To Generate $5000 within a Week” and would surely bet that 80% of the people who come across that title would click to know what secret such a content has for them. Case studies usually drive huge traffic, though I don’t use them often, I’m currently working on some.
3. List of Resources
This is the usual blog post type that is currently used by most bloggers lately. It has become quite popular and still retains it’s power of driving traffic to a blog. A compilation of a list to a resource is quite simple to write as other blog posts, come up with ideas and turn them into resource list blog post types. A list of top PPC programs, highest paying affiliate programs and lots of others are good examples.

4. How Tos
One thing that should really convince you that these type of content ideas draw traffic is WikiHow and eHow. All their contents circle around How Tos and yet they command huge traffic to their blogs. If you are good at making Tutorials, you can write some cool How Tos and watch traffic increase to your blog.
5. Number Posts
Every one loves to know how many points you have concerning a subject matter, and the higher the better. I’ve conducted this experiment and had it work for me. For instance, if I use Google to search to the keyword “Ways to Make Money Blogging” and I see articles with titles such as “Ways How You Can Make Money Blogging” and “20 Ways To Make Money With Your Blog” , I would most likely click on the 20 Ways article and i’m sure you too will. Number articles have their power and way of attracting traffic. Here is an example below.

Some reasons why you might not be getting huge traffic is because you did not promote your blog posts, or your blog has a low Search Engine Ranking authority. Blog post promotion should not be overlooked if you wish this to work for you, and a simple way to build up your blog’s Search Engine Rank Authority is by Guest Blogging. I hope you’ll apply some of these tips and watch your traffic grow using those titles.
